  • Onsite Meteorological Data - Everything You Need To Know

    Most AERMOD dispersion modeling is conducted using meteorological data from a nearby airport.  As long as the airport is reasonably representative of your source location, there is nothing wrong with that: airports are often a source of high quality data and located near major population centers and thus, major air pollution sources.   ...

  • Remote sensing of particular pollution from space: Have we reached the promised land?

    The recent literature on satellite remote sensing of air quality is reviewed. 2009 is the 50th anniversary of the first satellite atmospheric observations. For the first 40 of those years, atmospheric composition measurements, meteorology, and atmospheric structure and dynamics dominated the missions launched. Since 1995, 42 instruments relevant to air quality measurements have been put into ...

  • Where do you find the latest meteo technologies at one place?

    Sustainability is the main theme of both the Meteorological Technology World Expo and the CIMO Teco (Technical Conference on Meteorological and Environmental Instruments and Methods of Observation)  held in Madrid from September 27 until 29, 2016. Therefore it’s the optimal platform to present one of our latest environmental sensor developments to a broad public: the ...

  • Surface Ocean Acidification studies using Ships Of Opportunity

    Ships of Opportunity Ships of opportunity (SOOP) are used as a platform for cost-efficient collection of environmental data, Ferrybox. The SOOP network operated by NIVA cover the majority of the Norwegian coastline (from Germany (54N ) in the South to Svalbard (78N) in the North. This network is used in the national OA monitoring program. Globally, SOOPs are used for pCO2 measurements and ...

  • Monitoring mixing dynamics in Toolik Lake, Alaska

    Toolik Lake is 130 miles south of Prudhoe Bay in northern Alaska. It is one of the main monitoring sites of the Arctic Long-Term Ecological Research (LTER) project and a site for studies led by Sally MacIntyre of the University of California investigating the linkages between hydrodynamics and ecosystem function. Both studies are funded by the U.S. National Science Foundation. It is classified as ...

  • The invisible fine dust

    Air is lifeblood. Daily we inhale approximately 15.000 liter. Still, the air contains invisible pollutants, which vary in its composition and concentration depending on the location. Especially the respirable particles with a diameter of less than 2.5 µm (PM 2.5) were considered to be particularly dangerous. According to a current study conducted by the Max Planck Society, ...

  • Advanced Water Quality Techniques Course

    Abstract:The development of a strategic water quality monitoring program is based on prioritizing risks to public safety and economic reality. The development of global standardized methods and protocols for automated water quality monitoring would facilitate international communication of water quality information and comparison of standardized methods and protocols. The three primary methods ...
